... "My recommendation: Go to the new ordering page link and get yourself one of these collector’s items. What better way is there to start a conversation with people who notice your shirt and ask about it, and then educate them on 'Project Gunwalker'?" ...

"And by way of full disclosure, Sorrentino is sending me a T-shirt. So it's not like I'm hyping this for fabulous remuneration, although I will be damned happy when I get my shirt and damned proud to wear it."
 

ATF: Gun Ownership is a Privilege, Not a Right

"The ATF’s website has an FAQ section. First up: 'I want information on relief of federal firearm disability? (I am a felon but want to own a firearm, how do I get my privilege restored?)' According to dictionary.com, a 'privilege' is 'a right, immunity or benefit enjoyed only by a person beyond the advantages of most: the privileges of the very rich.' It behooves the [ATF] to remember that all Americans have the RIGHT to bear arms. And once again, I state my firmly held conviction that ANY American who has paid his or her debt to society should have their gun rights restored. Automatically. Especially in light of the fact that . . ." ...

"Motorists shooting motorists. Does this happen at gun shows?—'TwoTired00'"

"Effective in November, Wisconsin will become the 49th state to allow the concealed carry of handguns. The issue of concealed carry has a number of policy arguments on both sides, as well as statistics that have been used both for and against allowing concealed carry."

"However, despite the policy arguments, the new law only begins to bring Wisconsin in line with citizens' rights under the Second Amendment to the Constitution." ...

"I couldn't help but notice that the weekend's tragedy in Norway bears a striking resemblance to those at Virginia Tech, Columbine, Fort Hood, and others across These United States. Nope. I'm not talking about the shooter being a full-goose Bozo, a$$-clown, who doesn't have two, lucid brain cells to rub together. Nor am I talking about their choice in weapons, amount of ammo, or the number killed. No, I'm speaking of these idiot's undying affection for 'gun free zones' . . ."

Does CCW Prevent Mass Shootings?

"When gun rights supporters pushed 'shall issue' concealed carry legislation through the majority of State legislatures, supporters claimed the move would make mass shootings less likely. CCW (Concealed Carry Weapons permits) would create an 'invisible army' of permit-holders who could stop them. In fact, this anti-spree killing concept was The Mother of All CCW Arguments; deployed by lobbyists in Texas following the massacre at a Luby's Cafeteria in 1991. And yet . . ." ...

"Seeking greater proficiency in handgun usage, my wife and I recently completed Northeast Wisconsin Technical College's 'Civilian Firearms Safety' course. Some people perceive gun owners as redneck cowboys who walk around brandishing a big ol' six-shooter at their side to look tough. To be sure, there are a few of those. But the vast majority of gun owners are regular folks who own firearms for hunting, competitive sport, collection, or, perhaps most important, self-defense." ...

He started the company working out of his basement and has grown it into the behemoth that it is today. During my recent trip to AAC I conveniently forgot to turn the camera off for a bit while he was discussing silencers and more specifically AAC’s process in designing and developing their silencers. It’s about 20 minutes of silencer nerd heaven, all available for your viewing pleasure after the jump."

"In the latest chapter of the gunrunning scandal known as Operation Fast and Furious, federal officials won't say how two suspects obtained more than 360 weapons despite criminal records that should have prevented them from buying even one gun."

"Under current federal law, people with felony convictions are not permitted to buy weapons, and those with felony arrests are typically flagged while the FBI conducts a thorough background check."

"However, according to court records reviewed by Fox News, two of the 20 defendants indicted in the Fast and Furious investigation have felony convictions and criminal backgrounds that experts say, at the very least, should have delayed them buying a single firearm. ..." ...

"As a surge of weapons from the United States began to show up at homicide scenes in Mexico last summer, officials in the U.S. Embassy sent a cable to Washington that asserted authorities needed to focus on small-time operators as the suppliers of guns to the drug cartels."

"What embassy officials did not know was that at least some of the weapons they were noticing were guns that the [ATF] had allowed straw purchasers to buy as part of a sting operation, dubbed Fast and Furious. Ultimately, ATF lost track of an estimated 1,700 guns as they flowed into Mexico." ...

"It’s an unfortunate fact that in any large population of gun owners, a certain small percentage of them either won’t know enough or refuse to store their firearms responsibly. The results of which are often devastating. Some Armed Intelligentsia members have accused us of being anti-cop for pointing out failures by police officers to follow basic gun-handling and safety procedures. Nothing could be further from the truth. We have virtually endless respect for people that put their lives on the line to keep their fellow citizens safe. But when those entrusted with firearms and the use of deadly force fail to secure their guns, it’s a big deal. Especially when…"
